Autodesk Revit Architecture Content Creation - Virtual Course

This is an "online" version of the Autodesk Revit Architecture Content Creation training course, delivered remotely over a number of individual half-day sessions. The objective of the course is to enable delegates who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge to create custom element types and families.


As this course is delivered via a web-link, those attending will need to have access to a workstation, connected to the internet, and with Revit installed. A twin screen setup and a headset with microphone is also highly recommended. Delegates considering this course should be familiar with the fundamentals of Autodesk Revit Architecture as taught in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals course. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc.
